67th Avenue Drainage Improvements PROJECT UPDATE
Pinnacle Peak Road to Happy Valley Road
The City of Peoria completed a drainage study for the area west of 67th Avenue, from Pinnacle Peak Road to Happy Valley Road, to identify flooding issues and design measures to prevent future flooding. Improvements include curb, gutter and street grading along Mariposa Grande, Camino de Oro, Avenida del Sol, a portion of Villa Lindo and a portion of 70th Ave; a channel along Mariposa Grande alignment from 70th Ave to 71st Ave; and a retention basin at Pinnacle Peak and 70th Ave with a storm drain along Pinnacle Peak from this basin to the New River, and retention basins at Hatfield Rd and 67th Ave.
Please remember that construction schedules may need to be adjusted based on weather, equipment, or materials scheduling. If you do not wish to receive these updates, please let me know and I’ll gladly remove you.
- Crews are currently working on Villa Lindo west of 73rd Avenue to conduct concrete work installing curb, gutter and driveways in this area.
- Scheduled to take place 14 – 17, the intersection of 72nd Avenue and Hatfield Road will be CLOSED for contractor crews to mill (remove asphalt), regrade the subsurface of the roadway, and repave the intersection as part of the 67th Avenue Drainage Improvements. Detour routes are available on Happy Valley Road and Calle Lejos to 67th Avenue. In addition, during this time similar work will take place at 72nd Avenue and Villa Lindo; however, this area will not be closed for this work but a flagger operation will be in place to direct travelers around the work zone.
- Not related to the drainage improvements, but happening near you . . . scheduled to begin October 14 for approximately two weeks, crews will conduct sewer pipeline rehabilitation in Happy Valley Road, east of 83rd This “trenchless” technology extends the life of the sewer pipeline and is less impactful and of shorter duration than traditional removal and replacement. To accommodate this work, eastbound Happy Valley Road traffic (east of 83rd Avenue) will be shifted to the curb lane with lane restrictions in place. Westbound traffic should not be affected. As the rehabilitation activity takes place near 76th Drive, only right turns will be permitted to and from Happy Valley Road at 76th Drive. Two lanes of traffic eastbound will be permitted over the weekends to accommodate CCV traffic.
- Thank you for your patience during this work.
